 After our Denzel died, I wasn't sure that I wanted to
 stay subscribed to the list since he was our only positive.
 I decided to stay on because I felt like another positive
 would come into our lives. Well, I'm a spiritual person,
 and it really seemed like at least a nudge from God when
 Kelley was writing about Tofu in Austin which, by Texas
 standards, is pretty close to where I live. Anyway, last
 Thursday this beautiful little girl came home with me :-)
 
 We're still in the adjustment period, but so far she
 and the other kitties are cautiously getting to know each
 other. (One of our others is about the same age as Tofu and
 they've had some fun chasing each other.) We should be
 having a wellness visit with the vet soon, to decide what
 kind of preventive treatment to start her on; unlike Denzel,
 who was pretty symptomatic his whole life, she doesn't
 seem sick at all. So a question for those who have dealt
 with a combo positive - is there anything special I need to
 be looking out for with the added FIV? From

Emily, congrats to you and Tofu for having found each other, and to
Kelley for babysitting until you did!  Here's vibes that you have a long
and happy life with each other.

FIV is much less problematic than FeLV; often an FIV+ cat can live out
its full lifespan asymptomatically, and since FIV is much harder to
transmit (basically deep puncture wounds and sex) speutering should take
care of the biggest risk factors.  And yes, keeping them healthy is
pretty much the same as with an FeLV+ kitty.

Sorry, my mom was talking at me and I accidently hit send - anyway,  
I was going to say that from what I've read, it seems like the felv  
may be worse to deal with than the fiv, and that the precautions for  
both are about the same. If anyone knows anything different, please  
share!

Thanks!

Re: [Felvtalk] Further update on Tofu cont'd

2009-01-27 Thread Heather
This would be purely anecdoctal on one experience, but, we got a Mom
(double+) and her 4 kittens in March/April of 2007...she has outlived all of
her kittens, though she's also outlived other Leuk+ rescues we've gotten
within that time.   Other than the fact that kittens born with FELV
generally have much shorter lifespans (seems some on this list have had the
major exceptions to that), seems those infected as adults, really just
depends on the individual cat.

Of those 4 kittens we caught at 6 weeks of age, 2 were also double+, 2 only
FIV+...all went on to clear the FIV, but all remained or went + for FELV
(and were retested a few times months apart).

Just in case this experience is of interest...

You are right about the Felv being worse than FIV. I think precaustions
would be about the same. There is another group and FIV group that has files
on double positives. You may want to join that group as well. There are
several people who were on this group and now on that group as well. Thanks
you for taking this cat into your life.

Re: [Felvtalk] Further update on Tofu :-)

2009-01-26 Thread Kelley Saveika
Tofu is the cutest girl, and I really want to thank Emily for giving her
such a good home.  We were first boarding her at the vet, and then keeping
her in a bathroom, and she was not happy.  I know you can mix cats, but most
of our fosters have some sort of special needs cat that is immune
compromised and it is contraindicated to vaccinate them.   So we were just
crossing our fingers we could get a sanctuary placement, and even then a
home is so much better!

So thanks Emily for giving this special little girl a real home, and I hope
you bring each other many years of joy:)
